View Full Version : Need help with relapse
03-21-2012, 11:40 PM
I am back in the food again. There are several stressful events: seriously ill spouse, conflict, facing mortality of my spouse, facing to raise two teens by self, and usual marital conflicts. I know I am stressed. I turn to my old friend FOOD, and sugar. It gradually crept up. I may have 2 good days and 3 bad days. Now the bad days are streching longer and longer. Please offer me words of advise. I am also looking for a sponser.

Well done for coming and asking for help. I'm only fairly new myself, not listened to a meeting yet or got a sponsor, but wanted to give words of encouragement.
I understand the problems of ill spouse, teenagers and marital conflicts. Food was my comfort too.
Since 6 March, I've been turning to my Higher Power instead and feel so much better in myself. I know you will feel the same. Problems are still there but I feel more able to deal with them, as will you.
Keep coming back Sara

Almost everyone faces road blocks on their journey to abstinence, so do not feel guilty or alone. I am very sorry for the stressful times you are experiencing I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Take care of you. I wish you the best!

Hi to all....I am back about 2 weeks and the only thing I still crave is sugar. I try to deal with my depression with sugar altho I see the doctor and take medication. My life is not busy and dealing with the boredom also makes me crave sugar. This way of living is so tiring. I did well when I first started FAA was abstinent for 3 months. Thanksgiving came and went and I started my binging with sugar. It is hard to get back online but certainly needed.
Thanks to those who share...you are life givers. Tropical3

Thank you for the posts in this thread. I, too, am back from relapse. I so understand what you mean about the stresses of life and it leading to sugar. For me, bingeing on sugar and flour products has once again become my comfort. I've replaced God with them and fallen headlong back into food addiction. I too have teenagers, four of them, and it's really tough.
So, together, let's take one day at a time, make one right choice at a time, turn to God, and take the first step.
Thank you for reading.
